In a recent interview with The Project, 49-year-old music legend Céline Dion got candid about the 2016 death of her husband and manager René Angélil.

Dion described what it felt like to lose Angélil — who died at age 73 after a cancer battle —after decades of marriage.

“For three years, my husband did not have a sip of water or food. He was eating through a tube,” Dion said. “The only thing I hoped while he was in three years of agony: I wanted him to live in peace. I wanted him to feel so light and no worries. He had a little heart attack. It’s so quick; he didn’t even feel anything. I thought that he was like liberated from his pain.”

“He’s the only man I’ve seen. The only man I’ve loved. The only man I’ve kissed,” the Canadian added.

Angélil — with whom Dion shared sons René-Charles Angélil, 17, and twins Eddy and Nelson Angélil, 7 — died two days before his 74th birthday and days before the death of Dion’s brother, Daniel Dion. As Dion’s longtime music manager, Angélil had always had a role in her life personally and professionally.

Dion has a bronze replica of Angélil’s hand that she brings along to every one of her performances. With two Las Vegas residencies that combined have spanned well over a decade and counting, she’s had many performances with his hand in hers since his passing. 

Dion put her residency on hold during her husband’s bout with cancer, but it was Angélil’s constant support even through his illness that quickly led Dion back to the stage.

“I shake my husband’s hand and knock on wood with him every night before every show,” Dion, 49, told The Daily Telegraph. “Even after he’s gone, I still talk to him.”

A month before Angélil’s death, the longtime couple celebrated their 21st wedding anniversary.

“My husband wanted me to go back onstage before he passed; that’s what he wanted the most,” Dion said. “So I went back onstage while he was still alive; he wanted to make sure I could keep going. So I did prove to him (that), yes, I could keep going. I told him I’ve got the kids and that he’s got to trust me, he’s got to relax.

“He taught me so much. He did a great job; what he had been giving to me all his life and all my life will always be with me. He gave me his all. He mortgaged his house to pay for my first album. I guess before he left he wanted to make sure I was fine. I’m trying to prove to him every day I’m fine. Our kids are growing. We feel strong. We’re good.”

This 145-year-old company’s move to Lebanon is creating new jobs

Published: Monday, February 19, 2018 @ 1:50 PM

A global supplier of components and engineered systems is opening a new Lebanon manufacturing facility next month and hiring 50 new full-time production employees.

A company seeking to double its local workforce debuts its new $10 million facility today in Lebanon’s Kingsview Industrial Park.

Kadant Black Clawson, a global supplier of fiber processing systems for the pulp and paper industry, is opening a 130,000-square-foot facility at 425 Kingsview Drive.

The company is relocating 65 employees from office space at 7312 Central Parke Blvd. in Mason to the new building and adding 50 new full-time production employees to their ranks.

More than half of America’s recycled waste paper is processed on equipment made by Kadant Black Clawson, whose roots stretch back to Butler County in 1873.

Lebanon Mayor Amy Brewer said the city, the city manager and the economic development department had been working for an extensive period of time on securing the company for the community, which she said is “beyond exciting” for Lebanon.

“To bring in such a quality business and industry for our city is outstanding, but it took a lot of work,” she said. “As we all know … businesses are always looking to locate and choosing the right location and so there’s a lot of competition.”

The company’s expansion is fueled by a state tax credit approved in January by the Ohio Tax Credit Authority. The 1.687 percent, eight-year Job Creation Tax Credit for the company’s expansion project is expected to create 62 full-time positions, generating $3.5 million in new annual payroll and retaining $7.4 million in current payroll
